Quick Weeknight Dinner: Mac 'N' Cheese with Spinach

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Here's my daughter's favorite meal, it has been quite a challenge feeding her since she became a little picky about her food. She loves this dish and surprisingly loves the spinach too! Take a look:

Ingredients (serves 4-6):
1 pound macaroni elbows or rotini
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups 1% milk or low fat milk
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 1/2 cups spinach, chopped

1. Boil a pot of water for the pasta. Add pasta and salt to the boiling pot and cook pasta until al dente. Drain.
2. Meanwhile, heat a medium pot over medium/high heat. Add butter and let it melt, add flour and whisk to create a roux. Whisk in the milk, add a pinch of salt and bring to a quick boil. Add the cheese and mix it well allowing the cheese to melt altogether. Stir in the spinach and pasta, adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve hot. Enjoy!
